When I first started to wrap my head around exactly how massively I needed to eat if I wanted to put on any sort of respectable mass, I probably went a little bit overboard. I’d vacuum up food at a rate unparalleled by any of my peers.
We’d have BBQs and I’d have 3 double burgers and 3 singles. My stomach knew no bounds it seemed, and I put on some good size in that time.
Since then I have become more conservative with bulking. I tend to eat clean 95% of the time, and while I’m still operating a caloric surplus, it is far less drastic.
However, when I go out to restaurants, especially ones that I know to have a good burger. I go for the meanest, tallest, fillingest burger I can get.
Last night, I was at a restaurant that offered a $23 super burger that was made out of 5-6 of their beef patties(which were already pretty large to begin with), covered in garnishing and served on a custom baked 10" bun.
I did not order it, but I tried to take bets as to whether or not I could eat it. 2 people in my group thought I could and 2 people thought I couldn’t.
I think I could. But I have never really gone balls out and eaten such a large burger all at once. In the next month I’m going to try and get a solid bet on the table and go back to the restaurant and take on the burger.
This is more of a novelty discussion, since the nutritional benefits of eating such a large meal are probably mostly negative.
But, who has some fantastic burger eating stories?
